Holey Moley!

This was my favorite sweater last autumn until my puppy snagged a tooth on it.

Embroider Sweater - Before

I remembered seeing this embellished sweater on Pinterest and thought it would be the perfect Pinspiration for this project. First, I darned the hole using the closest matching thread I had on hand. Then I grabbed some leftover yarn from another project and started embroidering flowers, one directly over the darned hole to cover the not-quite-matching thread and the rest scattered all over the top right shoulder. I even did a few on the sleeve and back.

Embroider Sweater - After

I have a feeling this sweater will become a favorite once again.

All thumbs and toes up for this rescue!
Btw., thanks for teaching me the cute word of "Pinspiration" = never heard of it before yet: like it since at times so very true.

LG, Gerlinde
